We had hoped to do our homestudy in January. Life doesn't always go as hoped! Our adoption process seemed to crawl along slower than a turtle through January.
Waiting is not fun. I did not pray for patience. I called the state office that handles request for copies of fingerprint results to make sure my request had been filled out correctly, hadn't been lost, etc. I called our homestudy agency about weekly to see if they had gotten my results back and we could start our homestudy.
My finger prints finally came in to the adoption agency near the end of January. The last day of January, I was thrilled when we got a call and email from our social worker, K. We are scheduled for our first interview as a couple with K. for this coming Saturday! K. is going to fit all for of our meetings in one week to help us get our homestudy completed so that we can file our immigration forms ASAP and we can make our June 7 deadline to have all our dossier paper work finished and ready to mail to our international agency, Children of All Nations.
